Keeping out the Big Bad Wolf!!

Many times in fairytales the villain or enemy is depicted as a big bad wolf, something which was easy to identify and when in pantomimes you could shout out 'there he is' to some unsuspecting individual. However in reality the villain or enemy isn't always so obvious and their major weapon is deception. Villains thrive on preying on the naivety of their victims and unfortunately, in today's society their are numerous villains just longing to get their hands on the 'innocent'.

Jesus said in John 10:1 "Anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber". This highlights the fact that there is a correct way of entering a private residence. To get into your house you would most probably use a key, to access your email account a password and to access your bank account you would use a pin. These are the correct way to get access into a secure area.

To get access into your body there are various gates; your eye gate, ear gate and mouth gate. These give access to your mind and spirit. To gain access into you physically you would use your mouth or vagina. For a villain to enter you physically, it would be very difficult for them to do it without your consent or knowledge. You would have to be knocked out, taken by force, bound and possibly gagged.

However to gain entrance to you mentally and spiritually there are a number of highly sophisticated techniques that are being used by various 21st century villains one in particular is the media.

In many of the popular songs that you sing there are hidden messages. Some are coded so the words which are being sung do not mean what you think they do e.g. using the word banana to represent the word penis. Other messages can only be discovered when the song is played backwards, while others hide a large amount of symbolism in their videos with the use of subliminal messages, erotic dances, clothing and imagery.

How many of us would stand on the altar on a Sunday morning and sing about oral sex or having an orgasm? Or would you sing about masturbation, group orgies, sex outside of marriage, cheating on a loved one or being the cause of the break-up of a marriage because of an affair? But you do unknowingly every day when singing these popular songs. This is the method they use to enter in to you, the temple of the living God, and rob you of your innocence and cause you to be defiled without even knowing it.

Psalm 19:14 says "Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O LORD, my rock and my redeemer". Meditate on this scripture and allow the Holy Spirit to show you areas where you need to be more vigilant in order to protect your virtue.
